Fully Comp episode 3: Will parametrics live up to the hype - and could it ever enter the insurance mainstream?

Welcome to the third episode of Fully Comp, Insurance Post’s new regular video series tackling some of the biggest issues in insurance.

Today we ask the question: Will parametrics live up to the hype and could it ever enter the insurance mainstream?

Post content director Jonathan Swift is joined by an expert panel to discuss a host of questions such as:

  • To what extent is/or could parametric insurance plug protection gaps for the previously uninsured and uninsurable?
  • Could the current hard market be a tipping point in terms of making parametric offerings more attractive in sectors where conventional insurance is prohibitively expensive?
  • What are the most common misconceptions around parametric insurance?
  • How far are we from parametric insurance becoming a mainstream product?
